Yeah, after the UPC mix-up between those 2 titles, the release date mix-up between those 2 titles, cross-reviews between those 2 titles (I'm sure all related to the initial UPC mix-up)...I made sure not to use Amazon on those 2 titles. Who knows if you'll get the right product in the end from Amazon for those 2 titles? I don't want to risk the hassle, plus they're cheaper elsewhere.

"With SLAUGHTER HOTEL, it’s almost as if Di Leo was trying to make the form echo the content, creating a madhouse of crazed-craft that mirrors the state of mind of most of the people on-screen. Read that way, the film is an experimental, expressionist masterpiece. But taken for what it is, SLAUGHTER HOTEL is just a hot, sweaty, bloody and sleazy slab of Eurosleaze that is, like most of Di Leo’s work, most assuredly alive."

An extract from the insert booklet curated by Chris Alexander/Fangoria Magazine
THE GOLDEN AGE OF THE GOTHIC:
Exploring THE LONG HAIR OF DEATH
"If you’re a fan and scholar of that very special brand of shuddery, gothic thriller that emerged from Italy in the 1960’s then there’s no point over-preaching the goosebump-inducing gospel of director Antonio Margheriti’s THE LONG HAIR OF DEATH. Chances are, you’re already of the choir. You understand and value that preternatural power of this film and other of its ilk. You revere that blend of pulp thrills, rich, practical production design, covert eroticism and operatic emotional arcs that marked the best of these remarkable pictures........"

Got Werewolf Woman in today. I've never seen it before, so I only sampled a minute or two, but I didn't notice anything really egregious as far as DNR. It certainly looked better than Nightmare City that I got as a free 2nd title. I probably won't have time to watch it this weekend.

I think Raro's Werewolf Woman is a winner in picture quality.

The picture quality seems fair for a film of the age, detail is good and there's a clear grain structure. Colors seem muted to a minor extent, which I suppose we'd expect for a film of the era. I can see the pores on human werewolf woman's face, pubic hairs, texture on a fuzzy robe, foliage in the background at night... there are times of occasional softness but the movie does a lot with cinematography to intentionally keep some background or foreground out of focus.

I watched Kino/Redemption's Virgin Among the Living Dead (1973) earlier today and Raro's Werewolf Woman (1977) looks a lot better.

Unfortunately I'm not able to take screenshots. To my eye the disc is a BD 25 (there is only one barcode along the center spindle, which I think means 25) but I'm not 100%.

If anything Raro's Werewolf Woman image is slightly darker than I'd prefer, but that might be my own set display settings and it's not bad.

RSP review of Werewolf Woman - as the writer notes, it looks slightly less horrible then we're used to from Raro, but still plenty of waxiness and compression artifacts. I guess this is 'as good as it gets' from these guys.

The Conformist Blu-ray



The Conformist Blu-ray Officially Announced

Quote:
Raro Video U.S. and Kino Video have officially announced and detailed their upcoming Blu-ray release of Bernardo Bertolucci's Il conformista a.k.a. The Conformist (1970). Restored by Cineteca di Bologna, The Conformist will be available for purchase on November 25th.

This new restoration of The Conformist was re-released theatrically by Kino Lorber, opening at New York's Film Forum, with continuing dates at other theaters across the U.S.

The disc comes packed with special features that will provide audiences with new insight into this landmark film, including In the Shade of the Conformist, a 57-minute visual essay on the film by Adriano Apra, the original 1970 theatrical trailer, the 2014 US theatrical re-release trailer, and a fully-illustrated booklet filled with essays on the film and the artists involved in its creation, as well as a biography and filmography listing for Bertolucci.

Since its release in 1970, The Conformist has been hailed as an internationally important film and a triumph of film style. It was the breakthrough film for Bernardo Bertolucci, launching his decades-long career as one of the leading filmmakers in world cinema. Bertolucci's screenplay (adapted from the Alberto Moravia novel) was nominated for an Academy Award, and the film also helped to launch the career of renowned cinematographer Vittorio Storaro, who would go on to collaborate with Bertolucci on such classics as Last Tango in Paris, 1900, and The Last Emperor, as well Francis Ford Coppola's Apocalypse Now and Warren Beatty's Reds. The sumptuous art direction by Ferdinando Scarfiotti (Death in Venice, American Gigolo) creates a vivid depiction of the Italian Fascist period filled with Art Deco design and architecture. The film's atmosphere is further complemented by the beautiful score by acclaimed composer Georges Delerue (Hiroshima Mon Amour, Day for Night).

The story follows a secret police agent, Marcelo Clerici (Jean-Louis Trintignant) who is dispatched to assassinate his old professor, Quadri (Enzo Tarascio). Clerici uses his honeymoon with his new wife Giulia (Stefania Sandrelli) as the perfect cover under which to carry out his assignment. While on his mission, however, he becomes obsessed with the professor's wife Anna (Dominique Sanda), and slowly he begins to question everything he thought he believed about fascism.

The Conformist continues to be an influence to filmmakers the world over, and Raro Video's Blu-ray release will give new audiences a chance to discover this classic film for the first time, in a dazzling new restoration that does justice to Bertolucci's distinctive and incomparable visual style. It will also be a welcome addition to the home video collections of long-time fans of the film, who can now watch it in this new HD restoration that looks better than ever before, along with a wealth of supplemental materials that provide new insight and information into this influential masterpiece.

Special Features:

In the Shade of the Conformist (57 mins, 5 sec.)
Original 1970 US Theatrical Trailer
2014 US Theatrical Re-release Trailer
New and Improved English subtitles
Digitally Restored

Very confused. I ordered "Thr Long Hair of Death" from Amazon, but received "Werewolf Woman" instead. As others have mentioned, "Werewolf Woman" is directly linked to the "The Long Hair of Death" page on Amazon. "Werewolf Woman" looks cool so I will keep it, but I'd love to know what's going on here.
My first book, THE FRIGHT FILE: 150 FILMS TO SEE BEFORE HALLOWEEN, is now available on Amazon and Amazon Kindle!

Either Amazon or Raro can't seem to decide whether this listing should be for Werewolf Woman or Long Hair of Death. It started as a Werewolf Woman listing, then got changed to Long Hair of Death, then got changed back to Werewolf Woman.

Looks like Amazon isn't the only one having the problem mixing up those 2 titles. Must be an error on Raro or their distributor's end.
